  1. Glad to be here to help. I've been on the facebook groups and the hull truth but heard this owners forum didn't have a factory presence. Decided to get on here to help and provide better support for customers.
  2. Hi All, Been reading through the forums and really enjoy seeing those fishing/boating photos and reading the threads. I work in sales for Robalo and will be checking out the forums from time to time to help. I do travel a lot visiting dealers and boat shows so please be patient. Robalo warranty, parts orders, and customer support are handled directly through our dealerships which are factory trained to help with your Robalo needs. That is always your first resource for support but we are always here for you. Please feel free to private message me if you need anything.
  3. Hi Al, The R265 was a great boat for Robalo and we sold many over the years. Walk-around sales below 29 feet have slowed down nationally which has been a trend for a while now. Robalo decided to discontinue this model because its become a very small market. There are still a few left in the field if you're interested in buying one.

  5. Hi Kamal, The best place to install the autopilot is in the floor storage just aft of the cabin entry door. There is plenty of room in this compartment. Hope this helps! -Joe
  6. Hi Kamal, Lee brought your issue to my attention. We do not install autopilot at the factory but I will forward this to our engineers and see what their recommendation is as far as location to install. Send me your email address and I'll get back to you soon. Regards, Joe
  7. Hey Robalo Boat Owners, Feel free to "Follow" Robalo on facebook and get updates on whats going on in the world of Robalo. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robalo-Boats/140738705969847 We'd love to get some owners pics up on the site also! Feel free to share. Thanks, JOEBALO
  8. Wow! A big cow like that is rare! Nice catch.
  9. Please send me a message with your contact information & the information on the dealer you are working with and I'll see if I can help you with your issue. Thanks, Joe
  10. Listing is not a reoccuring issue on any Robalo and the R 260 has been in production for several years now with very few warranty claims ever arising. Most listing issues on a boat are from an uneven weight distribution. All Robalo designs are properly balanced on a sofisticated computer design system and each part/component is weighed for accuracy. The first thing you need to do is go to your local dealer and let them address your concern. The dealers work directly with Robalo technical support and engineers. They should be able to find out whats causing the issue and help you out. Thanks for being a loyal Robalo owner!
  11. Hey Jim, Welcome to the Robalo Forum! Glad to hear you are considering the R 305. It really is a special boat. Robalo is able to do some special add on's and some we are not able to do. I'll check with our engineering team on some of the items you listed and get back to you via PM. The boat was designed for use of Lenco trim tabs so I doubt we could do the Bennett's but will let you know. The new R 305's come standard with a single 300 gallon fuel tank. I noted (27.9 mph, 20.8 gph, @ 3500rpm) with a pair of 350hp Yamahas fully loaded, full tank of gas in the Gulf of Mexico. Top speed was just under 54 mph. The 350hp motors have a gauge setting to automatically adjust speeds while trolling which may help you when trolling for salmon & tuna. The boat would need to be purchased through a dealer. We will make the arrangements as convenient as possible for your purchase/delivery. If you would like to have our West Coast Robalo representative call you, please Private Message me your contact information and I'll have him contact you. Hope this was helpful. I will get back to you soon on the other information. You'll have to posts some pictures of some of your fishing adventures. Would love to see some of the fish you all are catching up in Washington. Happy Fishing!!! JOEBALO
  12. Some notes I have on the R 240 with single 350hp Yamaha (fully loaded): 50.8 mph Top End 28.6 mph @ 3500 rpm 10.5 GPH at 3500 rph planes in 3.5 seconds Hope that helps!
  13. WOW!! Fantastic work. She looks great. CONGRATS!!!!
  14. The foam in the Robalo is completely encapsulated under the fiberglass stringer system so you don't have to worry about any water getting into the foam. If water happens to get under the deck it will drain to the aft bilge pump in the boat.
